It’s time for Wonderwall.com to judge the fashion from the 2020 American Music Awards! And first up, one of Hollywood’s Hottest couples — Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly — who made their red carpet debut at the big event. The couple looked exceptionally sharp for the occasion, with Megan donning this emerald green minidress by Azzi and Osta with cutouts, an asymmetrical neckline, one single sleeve and a ruffled detail that draped from the waist. She added black Giambattista Valli sandals with gold embellishments along the ankle strap to complete her gorgeous look. Machine Gun Kelly’s opted for an all white Balmain look — which included a jacket with a plunging neckline that showed off his chest tattoos — and shiny silver boots.

A beauty in Balmain! Jennifer Lopez opted for a slinky silver sequined set at the American Music Awards. The superstar’s two piece look included a cropped, long-sleeved top with a plunging neckline and a skirt with a sky high slit. And when it came to her beauty look, she opted to try something new…

We weren’t wild about Bebe Rexha’s slinky silver moment. The star’s look was very similar to Jennifer Lopez’s Balmain gown, but featured a very daring cutout and asymmetrical neckline that didn’t feel necessary with the super high slit. Though we didn’t love the dress, her stacks of silver Loree Rodkin bracelets and simple silver sandals were a hit.
Dua Lip channeled the deep blue sea in this stunning Versace minidress. It featured all-over starfish-shaped embellishments, an embellished neckline, and a super subtle pale pink ruffled hemline. She added some metallic silver platform sandals and gold jewelry to the mix, including an ankle bracelet, layered bracelets, a necklace and a hair barrette. We’ll take a closer glimpse at her beauty look next…
Dua Lipa added to her ocean-inspired ensemble with gorgeous icy blue eyeshadow and a rosy lip. And she wore her dark hair slicked back, fastened with that gold barrette to add a little extra sparkle.
Yikes! Doja Cat’s dramatic dress was certainly a puzzling pick on the American Music Awards’ black carpet. The brown frock — which featured an exaggerated sweetheart neckline with purple piping, some truly bizarre ruching and ruffling and a super high slit — paired two very unexpected colors that just didn’t work in our book. To finish this ensemble, the singer added purple strappy heels to match that piping, and a very large necklace that we also weren’t wild about.
Gorgeous! Cara Delevingne got the metallic memo, opting for this glimmering metallic pantsuit by Dolce&Gabbana for the night. We loved the new take on the trend to go shirtless underneath — with Cara instead opting for a sheer bustier-style top — and the way she complemented the black buttons on the suit jacket by adding black pointy-toe pumps. Next up? A better view of her beauty look!
Cara Delevingne opted for a pretty unique makeup look — rocking all-over purple eyeshadow and a neon peachy lip hue. Despite not being crazy about the color palette, we did love her glamorous loose waves and the way she added delicate layered necklaces to the outfit.
Ciara truly brought the fashion drama in this phenomenal cherry red and black getup. The star’s Balmain gown featured a black collared detail that extended down the full skirt, which also included a dramatic train. And when it came time to style, the singer selected over-the-knee shiny boots for a little extra glam and gold jewelry by Vhernier.
Though we appreciate his bold fashion statement, 24kGoldn scored himself a miss with this mix. His rusty-hued velvet shirt did match those sparkly bellbottom pants and those burgundy shoes, but we weren’t fans of this funky getup.
Host of the night Taraji P. Henson looked regal in this chic sequined getup. Her long-sleeved Armani Prive minidress featured all-over sparkly sequins and a gorgeous embellished collar and sleeves complete with fringe. When it came time to select shoes, the star went with silver Tom Ford sandals. The look corresponded beautifully to that beaded headpiece, and she added Tiffany & Co. diamond earrings and a green tourmaline diamond ring. And there were a couple more accessories we need to take a closer look at…
Look at those gorgeous pink sapphire Tiffany & Co. ring! Besides the beautiful Tiffany & Co. sparkles, Taraji P. Henson also brought along an important 2020 accessory… a face shield.
Another shiny silver dress! Paris Hilton channeled a disco ball in this sparkly number by Valdrin Sahiti, which featured a plunging neckline and long sleeves with a sheer detail at the edges. Though we weren’t too crazy about the super short frock, we liked the way she styled it with drop earrings, that massive rock and a sky high ponytail.
Becky G wowed in Ralph & Russo at the American Music Awards. The star, who picked up the favorite female Latin artist award, donned this one-shouldered white gown, with silver embellishments down the bodice leading to a super high slit. She then opted for silver jewelry and shoes to match. We’ll check out her earrings next…
We loved the way Becky G paired her white and silver Ralph & Russo gown with those stunning big diamond hoops. Her glamorous waves and warm toned makeup completed her look to perfection.
We’re not sure that Lewis Capaldi got the memo he was at an award show! The singer kept things way too casual at the American Music Awards, opting for black denim, a white t-shirt and black and white sneakers.
Even though he opted to go sans-tie, Maluma still looked sharp in this navy blue suit and white dress shirt combo. The singer complemented his getup with black boots and a fresh new icy blue hair hue.
We loved the way Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay coordinated for the AMAs. The duo rocked different color suits — Dan in a dark brown and Shay in teal — but things stayed unified thanks to the complementary colors in Shay’s printed dress shirt that tied in Dan’s suit shade. Aside from the subtle matching, we also loved the way Dan added a crisp white turtleneck to his look.
It was a turtleneck dress for Kristin Cavallari. Though the frock was certainly unique, it wasn’t a hit in our book with its fitted silhouette and thigh-high slit. Though we did like the way she paired it with gold sandals and stacks of metallic bracelets.
Obsessed! The men of Bell Biv DeVoe, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie DeVoe looked dapper in this phenomenal matching suits in bold shades of blue, green and red. They accessorized with bowties, matching top hats, and boots, and all rocked a singular chain of a different variety.
We loved the hue of Iann Dior’s silky pantsuit — a pretty aquamarine shade. He rocked a mostly unbuttoned white dress shirt underneath, a white belt and a pair of sharp white boots for a unique menswear moment.
This color combo just didn’t work. Cassie DiLaura arrived in this bright red off-the-shoulder and one-sleeved asymmetrical top, which she paired with black leather leggings and tan heels for an unfortunate mix that scored her a fashion miss.
Anthony Anderson kept things simple and sleek in all black, adding some funky black and white shoes to finish off his American Music Awards ensemble. But he had one accessory on hand to spice things up…
This mask! Anthony Anderson arrived prepared for the pandemic with a mask that featured his own smile.
Obsessed! Newly minted “Bachelorette” star Tayshia Adams arrived in this divine purple number — a long-sleeved minidress that featured all over gold, black and purple sequined embellishments. Equally fabulous? Those black and gold strappy sandals!
We have to appreciate someone who stays true to their own personal style. Travis Barker stuck to his signature rocker look at the American Music Awards, opting for a studded and patched black leather jacket, a white t-shirt and skinny black jeans, but dressed things up ever so slightly with those black boots.
We liked Nelly’s unique fashion mix — a black Dolce&Gabbana t-shirt and leather pants and a very interesting accessory choice… scarves. He rocked the printed scarves tucked into his pants for a pop of color, and completed his cool look with white sneakers.
We can always count on BTS to rock a corresponding look! The men of the group sported sleek and subtly different white dress shirts and black trousers for their American Music Awards appearance.
Look at this sleek winter look! David Dobrik kept things cute, but casual in a black sweater and plaid pants, which he completed with black boots.
Looking sharp, Derek Hough! The star looked dapped in this gray suit with a black turtleneck underneath and black boots.
